CAMBODIA: Star Will Harm Textile Industry - Minister
Cham Prasidh told The Cambodian Daily the star, who plans to highlight the plight of textile workers in the country, could end up harming the local industry.
"People who want to improve the working conditions of women in the garment industry in Cambodia should reflect on ways and means to assist them, and they should refrain from pursuing their anti-globalisation goals by trying to harm the poor in the world's poorest countries," the minister was quoted as saying.
The comments were made at a Wednesday workshop in Phnom Penh, which encouraged female garment workers to stand up for their rights.
It is not known when Driver will come to Cambodia or where she plans to work.
